2020 was suppose to be the year of VISION for me. I made hefty goals of walking 2,020 miles for the year and get and stay at goal weight with WW. The only thing I have accomplished in my goals thus far is walking. As I write this ...I am at 969 miles...and on target to reach my goal before Thanksgiving. Goal weight? Well...let me say...i have proved the expression that you cannot out run your fork tenfold.
I miss my studio meetings with WW. I miss the coaches...the guides..the members. I feel lost.
WW (formally known as weight watchers) has certainly stepped up to the plate in helping the members as well as their company. They have really worked hard with etools with the water app...FITON...SLEEP tracker...online shopping...etc. They have really reached out with the virtual zoom meetings.
It took awhile...but ...I truly have embraced the meetings. I remember thinking that I would miss these ppl once we could get back to our own studio meetings again. Now...who knows when that will be? Many may go to the wayside? Will mine? Will yours? What studios will be safe? Not WW fault...it is how it is. Unfortunately, we have a long road ahead.
Yet...to be fair.....I do LOVE my zoom meetings. It took awhile to get over...how I look! LOL! I never really realized...that I am a mouth breather! LOL! I now make an effort to shut my mouth. Many of us have that...in the hair salon under the lights in that chair look! That gray hue! I hated how my neck...sags! So I try to keep my head held high! LOL!
Now...don't care. We all do not care. We are there together. I go to FOUR meetings a week now as opposed to one or two I use to do in person. All the leaders...guides...truly work together to make you feel welcomed. You get to know the other members. You tend to think of them during the rest of the week and hope they are doing well.
Did Ruth work on her chocolate addiction? Did Meena do her crunches? ..What mileage am I at for that meeting? The list goes on and on.
We go over the past week...this week....the weekly topic ....share...help....think...LA
UGH. i am telling you! We all still have our sense of humor!
I guess...I am writing this because so many are missing out on this gift. ....these meetings....the camaraderie .the learning and growth. It is being apart of something bigger than yourself.
I wanted to quit....but...no weight watcher person truly quits. WW stays with you. The eating habits we were learning when we first joined...stays with you. Member Carol shared that..she still keeps those thoughts and acts upon them at the store....virus or no virus.
WW has always given us the tools to use. They are more important than ever.
WW always says..we are better together. I get that now....I do.
I have felt so lost ...like I was in two worlds.....WW has been my constant.
No one envision 2020 vision that way it has turned out.
My worlds are stating to merge. Thank you to the coaches....guides...members...
we are truly in this together as...family and friends. We are indeed lucky.
